Olive oil is a remarkably resilient fruit juice, and freezing
temperatures have little to no effect on its nutrient content. A 2013
study by Mulinacci et al. confirmed that freezing extra-virgin olive oil
for 12-18 months does not compromise its quality. In fact, the study
revealed that the oil's aromatic profile improved over time, and its
nutrient content remained intact. These findings were discovered by a
team of expert chemists from Italy, who demonstrated that frozen olive
oil retains its safety for consumption and can even improve in flavor
after being frozen for an extended period.
The brown bits in your olive oil are small particles of the olive fruit,
including skin, pulp, and pits, that are not removed during the
pressing process. These particles are natural and safe to consume, and
they can be found in unfiltered olive oil. Unfiltered olive oil has
higher levels of nutrients and antioxidants compared to filtered olive
oil, making it a healthier option. The brown particulate matter may
settle to the bottom of the bottle over time, but some may float in the
oil. The quality of the particulate matter can vary, but it is safe to
consume and can even add to the flavor profile of the oil.

Extra virgin olive oil is made from the first cold-pressing of olives,
has no chemicals or solvents added, and has a fruity, intense flavor
profile. Standard olive oil is a blend of cold-pressed and processed
oils, has a milder flavor, and may have chemicals added.

Croatian extra virgin olive oil is unique due to the combination of
climate, soil, and expertise of the local producers. The olive trees are
grown on the sunny hillsides of the Adriatic coast, which provides an
ideal environment for the olives to ripen and develop their flavor.
Croatian producers also use traditional methods of harvesting and
pressing the olives, which helps to preserve the quality and taste of

Croatian extra virgin olive oil is rich in healthy monounsaturated fats
and antioxidants, which can help to lower cholesterol, reduce the risk
of heart disease, and improve overall health. It also contains high
levels of vitamin E and phenols, which have anti-inflammatory properties
and may help to protect against cancer.
To ensure that you are purchasing authentic Croatian extra virgin olive
oil, look for labels or certifications that indicate the oil has been
produced in Croatia and meets certain quality standards. You can also

Croatian extra virgin olive oil is a versatile ingredient that can be
used in a variety of dishes, from salads and marinades to sautés and

Olive oil can be safely used for up to two years after the seal is
broken, provided it is stored properly and does not exhibit any signs of
spoilage or rancidity. However, the antioxidant levels in olive oil are at their highest within the
first few months after the seal is broken. After about three months, the
levels of antioxidants begin to decline gradually. Therefore, to reap
the maximum nutritional benefits from your olive oil, it's best to use
it within the first three months of opening, provided it's stored
correctly and doesn't show any signs of spoilage. It's also essential to
store the oil in a cool, dark place away from light and heat sources,
which can accelerate oxidation and spoilage.

Our primary market is North America. Europe has a wide variety of regional olive oils to choose from, but Selo is not one of them.
